Dr Adele Bardazzi is currently Laming Fellow at Queen's College, University of Oxford. She completed a DPhil in Medieval and Modern Languages at Christ Church, Oxford, under the supervision of Prof. Emanuela Tandello. Prior to that she received her BA in English and Italian at Royal Holloway, University of London in 2013 (for which she was awarded the Harrison Prize).
Her main interest is modern and contemporary poetry. More specifically, her research focuses on loss and mourning in Italian lyric poetry.
She is co-founder and co-convener of the Research Network Gender and Authority, funded by The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities. By bringing researchers from different disciplines across the Humanities and Social Sciences—as well as periods and geographical contexts—into conversation, this interdisciplinary Network aims to advance our understanding of the question of authority in the artistic, cultural and political fields, and specifically where they intersect with issues of gender. Together with Alberica Bazzoni, she is now putting together an edited volume for Palgrave’s Gender Studies Series.

She is committed to proactively engaging with the wider non-academic audience, and my latest project is the Podcast Series BOSS that I host and co-produce with Kira Allmann. You can listen to it here: https://soundcloud.com/gender-authority-network
